How teeth whitening can give you your smile back
Do you look at your smile and wonder how it ever got so dull and yellow? Are you afraid to smile because you think it just doesn’t look good any more? Do you wonder if there is anything you can do to get your smile back? The answer is a definite yes! The answer is a teeth whitening treatment, and Dr. Terry Linneman at Prairie Village Dental Care in Prairie Village, Kansas are just the people who can help.
How Do Teeth Become Less White?
Your teeth may have become dull, yellow, and faded due to the normal aging process. As your body is changing, and so are your teeth. Your tooth enamel is growing thinner and more transparent, allowing everyone including you to see through to the lower tooth layer, called dentin. Dentin is yellow naturally and it gets darker as you age. These changes combine to give your teeth a look that is dark, yellow and dull.
It’s not just aging that darkens your teeth. Enamel will also pick up stains from drinking tea, coffee, and red wine. Darkly pigmented foods like blueberries also work to stain your teeth. And of course, there’s smoking, one of the main causes of dental staining.
Why Not Buy a Kit From the Store?
You can try over-the-counter whitening products like rinses, toothpastes, and whitening strips. But most likely you will find the results are not very dramatic and the effect doesn’t last as long as you want. Now, there are other choices-professional teeth whitening treatments available at Prairie Village Dental Care:
- At-home whitening--your doctor will provide a set of custom-made trays and supply you with professional strength bleaching gel. You will wear the trays filled with gel for short periods of time at your convenience. It’s private, and you can whiten your teeth whenever you want.
No matter which teeth whitening treatment you decide to use, your cosmetic and family dentist, Dr. Terry Linneman, at Prairie Village Dental Care in Prairie Village, Kansas is there to help you get the brightest, whitest smile possible. So don’t live with dull, yellowed, aging teeth. Call today and get your smile back!
